NUCLEATION BEHAVIOR OF Al_8Fe_4Nd PHASE IN RAPIDLY SOLIDIFIED Al-Fe-V-Si-Nd ALLOY
【摘要】：正The microstructure of Al-Fe-V-Si-Nd alloy prepared by rapid solidification (RS) processing was studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and high resolution electron microscopy (HREM). The phase selection of the alloy during solidification and the nucleation behavior of Al8Fe4Nd phase were analyzed within the framework of time-dependent nucleation theory. The incubation time for Al8Fe4Nd phase was found shorter and the nucleation rate higher than those of α-Al. The results indicate the nucleation of Al8Fe4Nd phase is heterogeneous and the dispersoids of Al8Fe4Nd form as primary particles from the liquid, which is consistent with experimental observation.
